Zanskar Valley Trek | OurGuest Tour

About The Tour

Join us on this 13 day trip to explore the hidden Zanskar valley, a soulful trail where you leave all your worries behind and enter a land of indescribable beauty. Perched at a height of 13,154 ft, Zanskar Valley is a semi-arid region nestled in the northern flank of the Great Himalayas. The isolated Zanskar valley is known for its breathtaking landscapes and its remote and authentic villages where it looks like the time has stopped. The history-rich monasteries in Zanskar are often built around ancient hill top meditation caves, preserving an archaic form of Buddhism. Zanskar has plenty of copper deposits and therefore is popularly known as the ‘Valley of Copper’ for Zang means copper in the Tibetan language. Don’t miss the legendary Chang of Zanskar region.
